Spotify for Artists is a way for you to take control of your artist page and see who’s listening!
If you use CD Baby to upload your music to Spotify, you get instant access to sign up for Spotify for Artists once your content is delivered. When you get access to Spotify for Artists through CD Baby, you’re automatically verified on Spotify and your profile gets a blue verification check mark. Getting verified on Spotify lets your fans know that your artist profile belongs to you.
If you are not seeing your artist show up in the drop down menu, it could be:
- Content just recently delivered to Spotify and the information has not yet processed on the Spotify side
- You did not choose Spotify as one of their DD Partners
- You have not given your final approval for digital distribution
If your artist is linked incorrectly with another artist:
This, unfortunately, is a common occurrence with bands/artists that have the same or similar names. However, we can get your album moved to its own page and away from the incorrect artist for most sites we work with.
